Make: Chanel-Inspired Embellished Top
DIY Chanel-inspired top, via Tuts+. Photography by Mette Jakobsen.
In my other job as editor of Crafts & DIY at Tuts+, I was inspired by Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel Autumn/Winter 2014-2015 collection to commission a DIY top. One of the pieces in the collection, a rolled-neck loose jumper, caught my eye. Featuring a scattering of confetti-like studs in a delicious palette of colours, it really popped.
The inspiration for the DIY: Chanel AW14-15. Photography by Style.com.
Talented crafter and Tuts+ instructor Mette Jakobsen loved the look too, and came up with a genius step-by-step tutorial on how to embellish a plain white top from COS using a very simple technique: nail-varnished studs! All you need is nail polish, glue and studs. It’s amazingly easy with no sewing!
I’d love to hear your thoughts. Have you seen the photos of Chanel’s Autumn 14-15 supermarket runway set? Do you like making or up-cycling your own clothes?
